Pregame Thread: Nets-Blazers

Update: Deron Williams is out tonight with a stomach virus. Sundiata Gaines will start in his place.

The Nets close a five-game West Coast trip tonight against the Portland Trailblazers, Gerald Wallace’s former team. Portland’s led by LaMarcus Aldridge, and despite a point differential of +0.9 points per game, they’re just 25-29 and four games out of the eighth spot in the playoffs.

The Nets are 3-1 on this road trip, and a few random plays and 10,000 Kobe Bryant rim bounces away from being 4-0, and are more watchable than they’ve possibly ever been in the past three years.

Tip at 10:00. Go Nets.
